Those of you who know me personally, will also know that cooking and housework are not my favourite pastimes. So, this month’s post is a bit more ‘tongue in cheek’ as it’s all about my recently acquired, ‘Dolly’ Dyson, cordless vacuum cleaner. It’s been quite a revelation, 😉.
So now I firmly believe…………
This is also what I imagine mum, would have been saying to me as I contemplated replacing our trusty and long serving Henry Hoover with a light-weight, cordless Dyson.
In fact, I can hear her quiet chuckle each time I grab our newly acquired Dolly Dyson and whiz around a room without a care in the world.
So, it was that a few months ago, I took the plunge and bought one.
We’d had our Henry Hoover for many years, but I’d reached the point where for the sake of my back and my sanity, I needed an appliance that would just make my life easier, pure and simple.
However, though Dolly is cordless and light-weight ‘she’ only has a battery life of 20 mins, so now I find myself planning my hoovering 😉 and being far more strategic in my approach. If you only have 20 minutes, you need to prioritise.
No more aimless meandering around the house for ‘hours on end’ with a ‘Hoover’ for me, thank you very much.
The arrival of Dolly has completely changed my behaviour around hoovering, old habits have gone and been replaced with a new focus and almost, but maybe not quite ‘enjoyment’.
Can’t quite believe it took me so long to make the decision, and so in honour of mum, I’d like to say again:
Surprising what you can get done in 20mins, and I’m sure it’s helping to keep me sane.
So there you have it, until next time
